What's next?

Dresden - In view of the increasing number of refugees on the German-Polish border in Eastern Saxony, the Greens in the state parliament have asked the federal government to help the Free State.

"Our task is to ensure good and safe accommodation under Corona conditions," said parliamentary group leader Franziska Schubert on Thursday.

Subsequently, a rapid distribution within the Federal Republic and among the municipalities must be guaranteed.

Close coordination with neighboring Poland and a pan-European solution are necessary.

While Frankfurt / Oder has been the main point of contact in the past few weeks, the events are increasingly shifting towards Görlitz and East Saxony.

Raid against gang of smugglers

There the cases are increasing: the officers of the Federal Police only picked up 21 migrants from Syria, Iraq, Jordan and Turkey in the district of Görlitz on Wednesday.

They were brought to the office in Ludwigsdorf.

The federal police had already discovered illegally entered migrants in the previous days.

In several cases it was also possible to arrest people smugglers.

Pre-trial detention was ordered against two suspects on Wednesday.

According to the state directorate of Saxony, there are currently around 4,000 places for refugees in the initial reception facilities. A good 3000 are occupied, 954 are still available. At the moment, together with the Ministry of Finance responsible for the relevant properties, an expansion of capacities is being “intensively promoted”, it said. The Ministry of the Interior also referred to upcoming discussions. Details on further plans are expected to be announced on Friday afternoon.

The migration policy spokeswoman for the Green Group, Petra Čagalj Sejdi, warned of increasing occupancy in the initial reception facilities. In view of the corona pandemic, precautions would have to be taken to limit the risk of infection in the facilities. “Alternative facilities should be prepared now.” Incoming refugees have to be tested - vaccination offers also make sense. The AfD parliamentary group, on the other hand, sees an expansion of capacities in the initial reception facility as critical and warned of a “fatal signal”.

According to the Federal Police, more than 4,300 people have illegally entered Germany on the new escape route via Belarus and Poland since August.

They came primarily from Iraq as well as from Syria, Yemen and Iran.

Brandenburg, Saxony and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania are particularly affected.

In May, the Belarusian ruler Alexander Lukashenko announced in response to tightened sanctions by the European Union that it would no longer prevent migrants from continuing to travel to Poland and the Baltic States.

According to Brandenburg's Interior Minister Michael Stübgen (CDU), the federal government wants to accelerate the forwarding and distribution of refugees with a new registration center in Brandenburg.
